Quantum Computing via Electroluminescence

Quantum Computing via Electroluminescence

The first steps to achieving efficient electroluminescence necessary for quantum computing have just been made. Quantum computers encode information in quantum bits otherwise known as qubits. These qubits can exist in the form of a photon or an electron, where the...
Does Information Carry Mass?

Does Information Carry Mass?

If information carries mass, could it be the dark matter physicists are craving? The existence of dark energy and dark matter was inferred in order to correctly predict the expansion of the universe and the rotational velocity of galaxies. In this view, dark energy...
Frame-Dragging Caught in Action

Frame-Dragging Caught in Action

An astrophysical system has just demonstrated frame dragging for the first time. The dragging of space time by a rotating mass, otherwise known as frame-dragging, was predicted by Einstein’s general relativity. Einstein postulated that not only does a mass curve...
A Deeper Look into Black Holes

A Deeper Look into Black Holes

A deeper look into one of the most intriguing objects has just been revealed. Black holes are typically observed by the light given off by the surrounding material, such as accretion disks or high velocity jets known as quasars. In 2015, this was extended to...
